All the pilgrims arrived safely and in good shape. We boarded the bus and took a marvelous tour of Lisbon Portugal which is a beautiful and historic Catholic city. My favorite thing was a huge statue of Christ the King.
After an authentic Potugese lunch on the waterfront we went to see a Eucharistic miracle in Santerem, after which we arrived in Fatima where we had a nice time settling in at the best hotel in the city and a nice dinner.
Everyone is now sleeping and getting rested for a full day at Walking and praying in the footsteps of Our Lady and the four special children of Fatima – seeing all of the wonders of this powerful Marian apparition in 1917.
Also I am including the video of Msgr. Droll’s homily at the birthplace of St. Anthony in Lisbon.
